		booksBenzin : Young Swiss Graphic Design
Michel Fries and Thomas Bruggisser voyage through Switzerland in search of a new generation of young Swiss graphic designers. What they find is a Swiss design scene as "hip" as anything in London or Berlin. Influenced by the famous "Swiss School" of the 1950s and 60s, young Swiss designers today still hold concept and structure as functional beliefs, allowing artistic freedom in counterbalance to the service aspects of design.
